Letters from Tully by Estalla Bown Culp
Historically, the West has attracted people with yearnings for freedom and adventure, people who define themselves as individuals. Unlike their husbands and brothers, women in the West did not, for the most part, subdue and tame the land, but their character and individuality were manifested as they lived with their own way of life and the need for self-expression led them to write of f their experiences, providing them with a creative outlet and offering those who came later a unique window into the past.
Letters from Tully is a wonderful contribution to the history of South Dakota. It gives us the voice and the memories of a woman who lived that history - full of nostalgia, sorrow, joy, and loss - rich with those intimate details of living that make history come to life.
